For the chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts - boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 16 slices thin cut bacon

For the Brown Sugar Mix

  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar - well packed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • fresh parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF/170ºC.
  • To aid clean up cover your baking tray with a layer of aluminium foil.
  • Place a cookie cooling rack on top of the baking tray, this allows the bacon to crisp on all sides.
  • Cut the chicken into 1 inch cubes (I aim for 16 small bites out of each chicken breast) and sprinkle over the salt, black pepper, rosemary and onion powder.
  • Set aside.
  • Tip the sugar in a small bowl adding in the salt and smoked paprika.
  • Cut the bacon slices in half (or into thirds if you have very long bacon)
  • Wrap each piece of chicken with a piece of bacon and secure with a cocktail stick.
  • Roll the chicken bites in the brown sugar mixture and place on the prepared rack.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes until bacon is crisp.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  • I served mine with a mustard maple dipping sauce, spiked with paprika.
